Sts. Cyril and Methody’s annual Macedonian festival is the longest running ethnic festival (1991) of its kind in the United States. It is a three day weekend extravaganza held during the 2nd or 3rd weekend of July on the spacious church grounds and attracts in excess of 4,000 guests from all ethnicities from the greater bi-national region. The festival features big top tents, Macedonian cultural exhibits, foods, desserts and libations. Further adding to the overall cultural experience is Oro (circle) dancing, games and live entertainment, which include Macedonian bands and dance groups from Toronto, Canada and other Macedonian communities. Often it becomes the annual family gathering for some families that are now separated geographically. Fundamentally, it is a delightful family focused occasion that celebrates Macedonian culture and hospitality no matter what your ethnicity. The Festival is a major fund raising event for the community.
